  1. Hi All, Found this forum when searching for information about hookah bars and hookah & health issues. Read a few (numerous) posts and decided to register. I was first introduced to hookah smoking about 11 years ago in Israel, brought a one-hose pipe back from Egypt, but only got to use it last year, when I finally replaced one of the rubber grommets that Israeli customs had lost all that time ago. It has worked great, and recently added a 2-hose "hubbly" to my collection. Will post pics soon, have no idea what make they are, just what I've bought from my "dealer". From reading this forum, there is clearly a lot I don't know, and I would dare say that I am a rank amateur when it comes to hookah smoking compared to some of the members here. First time I smoked my pipe last year, some friends asked me if I was doing NHT. From then on I've called the guy I buy my tobacco and other hookah stuff from, my "dealer", heh. Have been using quick-lights up till now, think I want to try naturals. Never mind the various tobacco flavours recommended here, some that I haven't heard of before. B

  5. I showed this article to someone the other day, who suddenly decided that hookah smoking is extremely bad for you (think this came from the flawed WHO report and sensationalistic media reports). When she read the article, she called it "putrid pipe smoking vomit". Alrighty, dunno if we will be friends for much longer if that's the attitude. Oh well, I enjoy it, I know it isn't really good for you. B
  6. [quote name='Splinter' timestamp='1302128085' post='504467'] I'm from South Africa, over here hookah is sometimes called 'okka' (say or-ka) lol [/quote] Interesting, so am I, we just call it "hubbly", short for "hubbly bubbly". When I was in Israel it was "Nargilah" and in Egypt "sheesha". To the non-initiated, I say "waterpipe", but the look gets even more confused then. B
